couple months ago i had a gears of war theme commission and thats how i was put on to this game.i always been a playstation guy but after looking for reference for gow for that commission i ran out and bought an xbox and the 1st 2games.so yeah am a fan.

So you've actually worked professionally as a contracted artist for a comic?

Your work as at such a high caliber I'm surprised you haven't. Stupid question but have you shown your portfolio to professionals what did they have to say?

I meant have you taken your work to Conventions and received critiques from other professional artists? Cause they wont reject you they'll help you and most likely encourage you to keep on going, I'm not tryna be a comic artist myself but I still sit down at their booths and troll them for their knowledge. But definitely man keep doing what your doing your work is unique.

havent been to a con since i was a kid.tried a couple weeks back to get a table at nyccc but they said i was to late everything was booked already and plus a table was $500.like i said to date i have never shown my stuff to anybody in the biz.i know i have to start going to cons to mingle and meet people in the industry but i will get things done regardless with or without those connects.i waited to long to take my talent serous and it cost me.now i just dont have the time to break in the conventional way.it takes people on average 10-15 yrs to break in.i just dont have that luxury anymore,not trying to still be trying at the age of 40.by than i need to be doing..

I think that's the right attitude man, Don't go by the average keep pushing till something gives. One positive thing about talking to professional artists they can give you a realistic forecast on the industry and what's the work like. But aside from that I have to agree with you, I'm having the same issue with trying to break in to film and television with animation. I do want that industry experience but ultimately I want to have full control over a project, so maybe starting my own business is an idea? And I'll pay someone else to handle the financial side of things. Bro I encourage you to keep pursuing your ambitions don't let the words of men tell you otherwise. Your art speaks for itself that's enough evidence for me. Peace :peace:

thanx dude and dont worry u got yours in in time for BA.i think all the glitches on DA right now are happening because of that new stash feature there putting in.am having probs with viewing the deviations on my watch list and also getting rid of the ones i seen already.anything that is stacked in a group its not letting me see.am expecting DA to be shut down for maintenance any minute now, at least for a couple hrs like they usually do.when they come back everything works fine.
